HASH(0xa26b7834) out of 5 stars Outdated and make learning confusing April 13 2014

I know that this book is free, but the fact that the environment has changed so much since it was originally written makes it hard to work with. An update to this guide would be really beneficial.

Not good. Keeps referring from one "if you haven't already got ... then go here ... " that takes you to another link, then off to another and endlessly on .

I spent most of 2 weeks trying to get set up and still not able to get into AWS Linux using my MacBook with Terminal to link with ssh.

Keeps wanting an IP address (I'm using Comcast) and never clearly helps to set up for mobile users.

The entire AWS documentation I saw was like this.

So unless you're already an IT guru with enough experience to already know what you need to do and understand all you needed to do before you got there, this isn't for you. Like so much "helpful documentation" the writers write like you already know what you need to know.

I was evaluating AWS for potential use for my startup, and now am seriously REconsidering if that is a good idea. So far AWS only has a sales person that wants me to buy a $49/month support package. He seems young and doesn't seem to understand that service comes before sales to get more sales.

Really disappointed at this stage that I can't even get support to just connect in to evaluate. If i cant evaluate, ... well, you get the picture.

HASH(0xa26b7a44) out of 5 stars It was free, so I got it. Sept. 6 2012

It was free, so I got it. It isnt much of a resource and as the title suggests, it will only get you some primitive basics about using the AWS and linux.
HASH(0xa26b7d38) out of 5 stars Not in-depth, but just right for getting started with Linux terminal commands Dec 1 2013

When I switched jobs from an all Microsoft technology setting to a Linux shop, this book was a great help. It is not in-depth, but it provides lots and lots of 'getting started' usage for many standard Linux commands. I'm very glad I got this book.
HASH(0xa26b7d98) out of 5 stars very good for non-linux user. April 25 2013

i am an oracle database developer and had a client that had their database on a linux server. i found the book to be a good reference for basic navigation of linux when developing the database and related program scripts.
